AMD Radeon HD 7970 Asus Edition Performance Review

Based on current gaming requirements the Radeon HD 7970 Asus Edition is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 11.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2022.

We proceeded to look at Dying Light 2 to see how that compared and predict that it will return a weak 0 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Star Citizen will deliver weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 56 FPS, Medium: 44 FPS, High: 30 FPS and Ultra: 21 FPS. Next we have Dying Light 2 running on Radeon HD 7970 Asus Edition which is predicted to get L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS.
